Why buy the Zoom H6?

Billed as the world's most advanced portable recorder ever, the Zoom H6 is undoubtedly one of the most credentialed and popular pieces of recording equipment on the market. Here are our top three reasons to buy:
  • Extreme capability — With six interchangeable mic capsules, the H6 gives you unprecedented recording versatility.
  • Unrivalled sound quality — With its advanced preamps, the H6 captures sound at a level of quality that most other recorders couldn't dream of matching.
  • Flexible sound pickup — The H6 comes with a super-directional capsule in front and a bi-directional capsule on the side, allowing it to capture both a targeted subject and the ambient sound around it.
